I baked yet again!

So don't fall over laughing but I did bake again. I think i'm turning into a really domestic wife. Last night I made Peach Cobbler with fresh peaches. We got peaches from Mick and Jen. I was really excited so I called my mom up and asked for her recipe for peach cobbler. I remember having cobbler a lot growing up. We would have all kinds of cobblers from cherry to blackberry to peach! They were all super yummie. So after Cody and I had dinner last night I started baking and found this recipe to be super easy! I'm finding that I love to bake now. So every weekend I get off i'm going to try to bake something new! So here is that yummie recipe for peach cobbler.

Peach Cobbler

1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups sliced peaches (about 6 medium) sometimes I put in extra
1 teaspoon lemon juice

3 tablespoons shortening (I never have this one so I would use butter)
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk

Heat oven to 400 degrees
Mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in peaches and lemon juice. Cook stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour into ungreased 2-quart casserole; keep peach mixture hot in oven. (I don't always do this)

Cut shortening into flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, the baking powder and salt until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto hot peach mixture.

Bake until topping is golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Serve warm and, if desired, with whipped cream or ice cream.
